The Honour Awards is an annual event which acknowledges outstanding service to, or achievement within NSW’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community. The SGLBA is proud to be associated with the annual Honour Awards.
Every day, people and organisations from across our community help others in all kinds of ways. The Honour Awards are about acknowledging individuals, groups, and companies that have contributed to the richness of the LGBTI community over any given year.
All awards recognise the work of a person or organisation that has provided leadership or achieved outstanding success within the LGBTI community or has provided excellent service or made a significant contribution to the LGBTI community.
The SGLBA has proudly sponsored the Honour Business award since 2010. We believe it is important to support ACON and The Aurora Group in the spirit of community collaboration. Our congratulations to previous winners of the Honour Business award, listed below.
